We Specialize In Finding Perfect Homes.


Simplify The Homebuying Process.

Buying a home can be daunting but it doesn’t have to be difficult. Follow our time-tested process to make your purchase as easy as possible. We’ve done this thousands of times – and we can do it for you, too.

Make Buying A Team Effort.

They say it takes a village- and they’re right. We’ve got the best group of local inspectors, lenders, and attorneys onhand and ready to work for you. All you have to do is say ‘GO.’

Buy Confidently. 

 We take homebuying seriously.  REALLY seriously.  We’ll provide a written estimate of value for any home you offer for, seamlessly coordinate your transaction, and make sure your big buy goes off without a hitch.

Our Proven Process Produces Results


We’ll meet with you to discuss your goals and help you strategize the best way to accomplish them.  We’ll offer professional, free advice to make sure you’re well taken care of.


Buyers who have been preapproved have a significantly better negotiating position.  We’ll introduce you to the best local lenders who can give you the best rates and service.


Think of us as your negotiation co-pilot – your offer will be professionally prepared, presented, and negotiated to make sure you get the best possible price and terms.


We’ll carefully attend to the little details throughout your transaction to makes things go smoothly.  We’ll look for the what-ifs, figure out the what is’s, and give you the time to focus on what’s really important – you.


We attend all our local closings to guide your purchase across the finish line.  We’ll scour your settlement statement for junk fees, coordinate the moving parts, and be ready to act if something comes up last-minute.

We Sell Homes. Lots and Lots of Homes.

A Little About Us

NextHome Excellence, A Family Company

Alex Krumm
Alex KrummBroker
Alex has been working (and playing) hard his entire life. He’s a totally radical dad of 4, an avid musician, and the kind of guy you hope your daughter meets in college.

The Atari 2600 ushered in an era of technological obsession for Alex. He wrecked his first computer at the age of eight and hasn’t looked back since; now he considers the internet to be his personal playground.

In his down time he’s a full-time second-generation Realtor®, broker-owner of Sarasota’s first NextHome franchise, and a Director at the Realtor® Association of Sarasota and Manatee (where he also teaches tons of classes.)

Stevie Krumm
Stevie KrummCEO
Born into the Garnet and Goldest family in all of FSU football, Stevie is an adventure enthusiast with boundless energy and a relentless perfectionist. She paints, she cooks, she parents, and she cleans up after her husband. Sometimes.

Named for Stevie Nicks, she’s the proud mother of four musical children: Dylan, Presley, Marley, and Halen. She loves Tom Petty, peace and quiet, and Reese’s peanut butter cups..

Stevie has extensive property management experience in both seasonal and annual rentals. She’s an advocate for owner rights and keeps abreast off all the litigious comings-and-goings of her business.

She’s also the Best. Wife. Ever.

Brenda Heanel
Brenda HeanelREALTOR®
Behold, the rarest of all things Floridian: a native. She’s outdoorsy by nature and loves camping, rodeos, and concerts. She’s even been known to start fires with her bare hands.

With almost 40 years of experience in real estate, mortgage origination, and title work, Brenda is a seasoned expert who’s seen it all (and done it all) twice. It should be known that she knows what she’s talking about.

Brenda leads a double life as the undercover superhero Nana B. to her grandson Brock (who absolutely adores her.)

Brandon Haenel
Brandon HaenelREALTOR®
Who’s got two thumbs and wrestles gators? THIS GUY. By far the tallest NextHome Excellence Realtor®, Brandon is a service-oriented expert who believes the client’s needs are priority numero uno.

Brandon a dedicated father, husband, and friend. He wears his heart on his sleeve and his head up high.

He also enjoys long walks on the beach, sappy movies (and action packed ones, too), and Florida State Football. He’s a recovering frat boy and might just be the friendliest person you’ll ever meet.

Andrew Krumm
Andrew KrummREALTOR®
Born in Alaska, raised on an ostrich farm, and constantly surrounded by the closest of friends, Andrew is an old soul who believes it’s more about the journey than the destination.

Andrew’s an enthusiastic botanist who gives old furniture new life in his spare time. He makes a habit of telling it like it is and takes the high road every single time. He’s part problem solver, part make-it-happen-er, and a boundless supporter.

He’s also a veteran Realtor® with a penchant for being painstakingly thorough. His clients tend to become friends long beyond the closing process – and he’s got a lot of room for new friends.

Some Words From Our Clients

Timing was everything! Alex explained the process so I knew what to expect from the very beginning. He also has numerous contacts in the area which made the pre-listing and post inspection repairs easy to manage.

Traci Morgan

Alex has been a joy to work with. He knows his stuff, is conscientious about following through on any and all of his responsibilities and his knowledge of the market kept us from over/under pricing our home.

Ginnie and Ron Hosie

If you are looking for a top shelf agent in the Sarasota marketplace, and seeking one who will provide unending excellent customer service, Alex would be the one.

Rick Illch

Alex was enthusiastic, energetic and easy to work with.  He knows the business and how to get the information out there. We could always depend on him to keep us informed and responded quickly to our needs.
